Integrated Coastal Ocean Observations in Terre Adélie
Entry ID: 1142_1_IPEV_FR

Abstract: The observation programme will allow evaluating yearly the state of:
- the pelagic ecosystem during the summer period from Dumont d’Urville to the shelf break and to the Mertz Glacier Tongue,
- the seaice zone ecosystem in winter,
- the benthic community observed by ROV in relation to icebergs and the dynamics of the Astrolabe glacier.
